Fansi Dhokli Nu Shaak

This is an authentic Gujarati curry. Greens beans cooked with small chickpea flour dumplings, tastes great as is or with Roti/Paratha.

3 Teaspoon Chickpea Flour (Gram Flour)
1 Teaspoon Whole Wheat Flour
Salt to taste
1 Teaspoon Chili Powder
1/8th Teaspoon Turmeric Powder
1/8th Teaspoon Ajwain (Caraway Seeds)
3-4 Teaspoon Water

Green Beans, Cut into Small Pieces
Salt to Taste
1/4th Teaspoon Sugar, Optional (I don’t add it).
1 Teaspoon Chili Powder (or to taste)
1 Teaspoon Dhaniya Jeera Powder (Coriander-Cumin Powder)
1/8th Teaspoon Asafoetida
1/4th Teaspoon Cumin Seeds
1/8th Teaspoon Ajwain (Caraway Seeds)
1 Cup water
1 Teaspoon Oil

Dhoklis: Mix all ingredients and make dough out of it. Add more water if required. Make small ball and flatten them in between your palms. Keep aside.

Beans: Heat oil in a pan. When hot, add the cumin and ajwain seeds. Once the cumin starts to crackle, add asafoetida. Immediately add the green beans and cover. Let it cook for 30 seconds or so. Uncover, add salt, sugar, and water, stir and cook until the beans are almost done. Now add the rest of the masala and dhoklis,. Add more water if required. Stir once to mix all the ingredients together. Cook covered for 10-15 minutes.

Serve hot with Roti.

I use whole wheat flour with Jowar flour. Add a spoon of yogurt and a pinch of soda bicarb to the dumplings.
